Hey Cary,

Thanks for checking out MWC, I see you have already starting having fun, I appreciate the One Sentence at a Time game you kicked off.

Are you open to sharing some of your winning entries? What are some of the challenges you faced in these competitions that you would only know by actually having had a part in it.

Have you explored the world of self publishing? Or just publishing Dahlias as a Kindle eBook to get it out there?

Happy to have you as part of the community!
Jameela

This looks like fun!

Mitch was tired of being dateless every Friday night.  But oh the agony of having to go out and spend time with people.

Review My Poetry / Re: The World I Live In

Hey, AntonioM

Your poem has lots of passion in it and some nice rhythms and rhymes in parts.  It felt more like a hip-hop song to me.  But it did have some great messages.  I would try to distill the poem down to just a few of the observations you wish to share.  Probably less is more here.  Keep writing though because poetry comes from the heart.  You just need to distill it down, ok.  (Disclaimer:  I'm a newbie, but love it when people share their intimate stuff ....)

There is always one, now there seems to be two. For those that think everyone is out of step and need to be brought back into line, look in a mirror. Freedom of speach is a fundemental right for all writers. We may not always agree with one another but there is no room for censorship.

The minimum age for this site would appear to be 16 years, you can only sign the agreement posted above if you are over 16!

My knoweledge about sexually activity and bad language was almost complete by 14 and I led a sheltered life.

If anyone wants to argue with me over religion lets find the proper website for our battleground, this is not the place!

This is a writing forum which should cater for the majority of people, commited to thier writing for whatever reason. We should be helping emerging writers with advice and encouragement, not with some of the claptrap i've seen here.

Like so many others before me, leaving this forum has crossed my mind due a minority of childish spoilers. However, when I think about it I've never liked bullies, and that is what these people are!

Maybe a quote, maybe a poem? Personally I think its up for discussion.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Low 40's (centigrade), high humidity. Thank you Willis Carrier (the man who invented modern day air conditioning in 1902).
